Where's our dam approval?

Three organizations are awaiting word from the government as to where the Mattagami River Hydro Electric Project lies with the Ontario government's plan to bring forth new energy initiatives.

Moose Cree First Nation, Tembec Inc. and SNC-Lavalin are expecting to modernize four hydroelectric dams on the Mattagami River, which promises to generate 384 megawatts of additional energy.

The proposed project would create approximately 350 jobs in a variety of areas, including construction and technical expertise, a much-needed jump-start for the Moose Cree First Nation community, where unemployment is high. The intent is to make the reserve fully self-sufficient, says an elder from the community.
